THE LATEST - and last - of absurdly wealthy author J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter books, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, has been completely leaked to several torrent sites, reports Torrentfreak.

Two torrents of the book showed up on piracy utopia and immediately gained a ton of downloaders and over a thousand seeders. However, the torrents were removed and that was that. They later sprang up on Mininova which has since removed the torrents.

There have been loads of fake leaks popping up all over the place, says Torrentfreak, however this one is the real deal.

Someone with access to the American edition of the book has taken a photograph of every one of the pages and upped them to bit torrent. Publishers may well be quaking in their boots, but in some places the quality is barely readable. On many pages the pirateer's hands are in the pictures with other pages needing a bit of Photoshopping just to make out the words.

If you're the kind of miserable fogey who loves to ruin children's books for kids and peculiar adults alike, there are a whole bunch of spoilers over here. µ
